    Guys, I saw that Takeuchi is now selling 4 new models of compact wheel loaders. Does anyone know if Takeuchi is building these new machines or buying and branding with their name? If they are buying, need to know who make them? G ZMAN*trucewhiteflag*

    According Tigerotor they are built by the same company that builds Gehls excavators. The name escapes me at the moment but there was a thread on it several weeks ago. I was kinda disappointed. I was hoping it would be their own.

    Actually, it is I who is mistaken... the wheel loaders are Atlas wheel loaders, but I'm not sure who owns them anymore. The specs given on Atlas-Terex's website don't quite match those of the Takeuchi, but it's possible that Takeuchi beefed things up a little bit. My mistake the first time around.
